'Asleep at the Wheel': Parents Suing the Department for Education for Harms Caused by Gender Ideology
Over the past 10 years gender ideology has embedded itself across our education system. It is in primary schools and secondary schools; in state schools and private schools; in grammar schools and comprehensive schools; in all areas of the country and in all social groups. No child or family anywhere is safe from its pernicious influence.
Through negligent management of our education system, activists have infiltrated schools and gender ideology has become mainstream in our classrooms, causing untold harms to children and their families; indoctrinating children to believe they were born in the 'wrong' body; and encouraging vulnerable children and adolescents to engage in physical dissociation from reality by abandoning their biological sex for some mythical 'gender identity' - in some cases leading to dangerous medical experiments with puberty blockers, cross sex hormones and surgery, as well as the breakdown of family relationships.
Policy Exchange has warned in a recent report, Asleep at the Wheel, that three quarters of all schools are teaching children they could have been born in the wrong body. Schools frequently do not inform a child's parents when a child expresses a desire for 'gender transition', or dismiss parents' concerns as ignorant or bigoted.
The CaseTen parents are suing the Department for Education (DfE) in negligence. The DfE has failed to act to prevent serious harm to children in violation of its own statutory guidance and the law, which prioritises child safeguarding and prohibits political indoctrination.
Litigants seek compensation for the foreseeable harms caused by gender ideology and hope that the case will help amplify the concerns of teachers, parents and young people who have experienced the harm of gender ideology firsthand, and put an end to the shameless political activism in schools preying on the most vulnerable of our young people - many of them with learning disabilities or autism, as well as other underlying co-morbidities.
The case would also seek to have gender ideology properly defined in law so that it can be exposed for the political extremism that it is, with preventative measures mitigating against future harms to children.
The case remains open for parents, teachers and de-transitioners to join as litigants.
This case will be run by the Bad Education initiative, as part of the Bad Law Project.
The target of the project is £125,000 to bring the case, and protect the litigants from costs risks. Remaining / unused funds will be donated to supporting de-transitioners and young people suffering the effects of gender 'transition' as a result of indoctrination in gender ideology.
Please donate no more than you can afford.

Cherifa Thank you keep up the fight for the right 👍
Steven It is disgraceful, the attitude of this trans ideology in indoctrinating children. We are home educating our kids and this terrifying ideology is a big part of why. I wish the best of luck and a speedy victory to the families carrying this case forward.
David This is vital not only for English children and parents but for Scotland too. Please make this UK law.
Vijay I am proud of all of you, who are standing up and being a voice to our little ones.
William This indoctrination is as bad as GBH , there are evil people behind this assault on our culture.
Anthony This work is absolute necessary and I thank you enormously for undertaking it.
Pedro Thank you
Mrs R-S Thank you for doing this, my children have now left the education system thank goodness, it’s vitally important to protect our future generations from this sinister cult that has been allowed to infiltrate the innocent. I’m astounded it has gone this far with the collusion of the media and government
Karen What a great and very necessary initiative. I will follow/watch with interest, thank you for launching this important action. The welfare and health of children now, and in the future, needs to be reclaimed. Let’s stop the madness.
George Keep up the good work Laurence get these perverts in court and shamed
Clare Heard about your cause via UK Column and Alex Thompson's interview with Anna. Happy to support you - this teaching so obviously child abuse and exploitation!
John This cause is very personal to our family and we hope that our support contributes to the end of gender ideology in the education system in the UK.
Andrew Thank you for this - I have been aware of the creeping take-over, but this is something that could have an effect.
Joanne Thank you for the work you are doing ..... There's an evil agenda against families. Healthy safe families are the bedrock of any civilised society.
Once again.... thank you for all the work you are doing. God bless
Carl Thank you so much for attempting to bring some serious change the education of our young people. Both my wife and I have a 1 year old and we both work in secondary schools. We have come to the decision that because of the ideologies being preached (not taught) without oversight or the ability to challenge without being labelled a bigot that we would have to home school are daughter. The work you are doing takes real courage and I applaud and support you for it.
Mark Please stop this madness!!
Paul Good luck with this action. This insanity has to be challenged and hopefully stopped. Our children should be educated not indoctrinated.
Pieter School should be about teaching children real life skills and knowledge. Maths, science, factual biology and not the pseudoscience that is currently being taught. Schools are not the place for a cult ideology.
Tracy Thanku for your fight against PSE in schools. Save our children.
Joanne Thank you for the work you are doing ..... There's an evil agenda against families. Healthy safe families are the bedrock of any civilised society. The information videos are a key resource for keeping society informed about the distinction between law and ideologies which seek to indoctrinate unsuspecting individuals. Once again.... thankyou for all the work you are doing. God bless Joanne
